For someone like Messi it’s only a wait for a night to achieve what he deserves and for someone like Luca Modric it’s a big upset. Croatia is out of this tournament now. 3-0 is something the Argentines cherieshd a lot. It’s the end of Luca Modric’s world cup journey as he is of 37. This is the world cup of so many upsets so far. Champion teams like Brazil,Portugal, Mexico, Italy and many more out of tournament. The dreams of many legends broke, we saw them crying too.

Argentina attempted 9 shots whereas Croatia took 12. The shot on target was 7-2 respectively. In the first half of the game, Argentina started slow but the passes were effective the attempted 399 passes. They toon the advantage and grabbed the opportunity of penalty very well. By 34″ of the game the G.O.A.T. Messi took the shot and mad the first goal followed by Julian Alvearz for the second one 39″ min of the game. By half time it was 2-0. Pressure was under the opponents. By 69″ Croatia was under tremendous pressure as Argentina scored 3-0, third one again from Alvarez. This is Alvarez who dreamt 10 years ago to play with Messi and now he was only playing for his role model Messi.
